(FT5) UPDATED: Panasonic G8x entry level camera to be announced on September 19.


Image above shows the current Panasonic G7

Trusted sources told us Panasonic will announce a new G8x entry level camera on September 19 (UPDATE: Launch got delayed due the sensor delivery issues).  I hope to get some specs soon but this should become the new entry level G camera. Stay tuned on 43rumors as new Olympus and Panasonic rumors are being posted soon!

UPDATE: After a talk with other sources I corrected and upgraded the rumor. The new camera will be a G8x model (“x” stands for a number that will be different in different regions).

For sources: Sources can send me anonymous info at 43rumors@gmail.com (create a fake gmail account) or via contact form you see on the right sidebar. Thanks!
